congresswoman michele bachmann has amassed quite a treasure chest for the re-election bid for the house seat there. as of july 25th, bachmann has raised and spent nearly $16 million according to the fcc report reports and that is more of any member of the house, and second to only john boehner, the speaker who has raised $18 million this election cycle. since her election to congress in 2006, the tea party star has been making an aggressive push for more tea party representation in the house. bachmann is now in a very close race with democrat jim graves, her first significant challenger since running for that seat back in 2006. joining me now to talk about it, in minneapolis, jennifer brooks of the "minnesota star tribune." jennif jennifer, good afternoon to you. >> hi. >> and congresswoman bachmann does not have trouble getting people to write cheshgs but there was an internal poll that notes that she has a pretty small lead that is well within the margin of error. why is bachmann facing such a strong challenge there in minnesota? >> well, certainly when the year began we never thought that

seats in the house are being challenged. michele bachmann swept into office in 2010 with a 13-point lead. now she's only two points ahead of her opponent. allen west, nine-point lead in 2010 has turned into a statistical dead heat in 2012. congressman steve king held an impressive 33% lead in 2010, is now down to single digits. is this a rejection of their ideas and could lead to the country moving away from this extreme right philosophy in terms of a takeover by politics in washington? >> yes, if as president obama said, because he was right when he said that real power is not here in washington, you don't change washington from the inside, it does mean that people from the outside, it's not just about who gets elected. that's very important. and then people outside of washington have to keep the pressure on their members of congress to hold them accountable for what they said they were going to do. when we've seen people do that over the course of the last couple of years, that's the only time we've actually ever seen congress act that or coming to a fiscal cliff and over a deadline. y

things that michele bachmann and mitt romney can't seem to understand is the difference between the public and private approaches of this president. in public he's been relational and engaging, seeking dialogue with islamic nations, but in private he's been ruthless and aggressive launching relentless drone strikes and pursuing al qaeda with a zeal that borders on the obsessional. as john kerry said at the convention, ask osama bin laden if he's better off now than four years ago. but mitt romney is not only blind to the present, he also seems ignore rabbit of the past. islamic anger and unrest has plagued virtually every president since jimmy carter whether republican or democrat. 241 american servicemen were killed in 1983 when the marine barracks in beirut was bombed and ron 23458d rald reagan was president. al qaeda launched their first attacks on america during the clinton presidency. of course, the horrific attacks of 9/11 came under the presidency of george w. bush. but if you listen to mitt romney, everything that is wrong in the world can be blamed on the current presid
